Storyline

Teen baseball fan Johnny Barrows sneaks into the baseball stadium of the Cleveland Indians, then playing in the 1948 World Series; claiming to be an orphan, he befriends team members & broadcaster Mike Jackson. But it develops that Johnny has a troubled home life with his mother and stepfather, and is involved in juvenile crime. His 'better side' shows only when he runs away to visit the team again. Can Mike and the Indians (playing themselves) wrest Johnny away from bad influences? Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Of Historical Interest
9 May 2001 | by (Scottsdale, Arizona, USA) – See all my reviews

Although a dreadful film, The Kid from Cleveland should be of more than routine interest to the baseball fan with a sense of history. Small cameo speaking appearances are made throughout by such baseball greats as Hank Greenberg, Bob Feller, Tris Speaker, Bill Veeck, Satchel Paige, Larry Doby -- well, just look at the cast. The players do more than just bat and pitch, the difference between this and most baseball movies.
